Try to Fix Twitter Cards Not Showing Images on WordPress

oh hell yeahhh … what a waste of time …. and good coffee ….

How Does Twitter Cards Work?
When your tweet has a link to a site that has twitter cards enabled, there is an option to view summary.
Whenever another user clicks on the tweet, they will see this summary.

There are 2 ways to implement Twitter Cards, the easy way or the hard coded way 😉
Guess what we do trying to avoid as long and as many plugins as we can.

Do You Speak emoji ?

on a wannabe secure WordPress site

For starters, yes I know that this language is on of the fastest growing languages. But do we care on a WordPress site.

🙂 😉 🙁 😐

Yes I am kind of old school, and no I dont’t speak emoji, and thats the bottom line. So when you are gonna try to get rid of the emoji stuff you can use a plugin or do some coding in functions.php both ways are gonna work somehow. The bright side is there will be no hustle when it comes down somehow to #GDPR and third party requests in the future.

And when you are going down that road of SEO with your own WordPress site, you will be soon in love with everything that improves the pagespeed of your site. As far as my pages and sites are involved, I try to avoid as many plugins as I can to keep it easy, slim and simple. Small is not appropriate for a CMS like WordPress.

🙂 D-‘: D:< D: D8 D; D= DX 😐

So on our projects we do it old school 😉


Web Application Firewall for WordPress

Do we all need a Web Application Firewall?

Really, what is this WAF (web application firewall) doing for me? Simple as that, it creates a set of rules designed to protect your website. A Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a tool that looks at the information in an HTTP request and blocks the request if it is malicious. This prevents malicious requests that are trying to exploit vulnerabilities in applications such as WordPress from being able to reach the vulnerable code.

Blocking unwanted web traffic from accessing your site, Protecting against some kind of hacks, brute force attacks, DDoS attacks, cross-site scripting, SQL/PHP/Code Injection, Cache Poisoning, HTTP Response Splitting, Directory Traversal, File Injection/Inclusion, Null Byte Injection, WordPress exploits (such as revslider, timthumb, fckeditor), Exploits (such as c99shell, phpshell, remoteview, site copier), PHP information leakage and a range of malicious requests, bad bots, spam, and other nonsense.

And when you thinking, “My Website Isn’t a Target for a Hack” oh yeah maybe.

The bottom line: No matter how unlikely you think a hack on your website might be. The website itself is a potential target, just because it’s out there, https isn’t enough, this goes along for strong passwords, 2FA and certificates too, these days.

Always Remember!
“its a hostile world, be prepared to fight”
